New National Trust Wales chairwoman visits Llanerchaeron

Taking a lead in tackling climate change should be a priority for the National Trust (NT), says its new chief adviser in Wales.

Linda Tomos said the organisation would "lead the way" in promoting sustainable farming practices as well as innovative ways of generating energy.

She will become the first woman to chair the NT's Wales advisory board.

The charity is Wales' largest private landowner and also looks after 157 miles (252km) of coastline.

Ms Tomos, on a visit to Georgian mansion Llanerchaeron near Aberaeron, explained her vision to BBC Wales environment correspondent Steffan Messenger.
